Pence: Prepare for severe winter weather, look out for neighbors

The following is a statement issued Saturday from the office of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence:

Indianapolis, IN – With unprecedented winter weather on the horizon, Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement today.

"In preparation for the inclement weather, I encourage Hoosiers to assemble an emergency preparedness kit with plenty of non-perishable food and water, fill any necessary prescriptions, ensure they have a safe heating source, avoid unnecessary travel, and be careful if they must be outside.

"As Hoosiers across the state prepare themselves for heavy snow and near-record low temperatures over the coming days, those in the storm's path are also encouraged to take the time to check on neighbors, family and friends who may need assistance, look out for each other, and remain in contact before, during and after the storm.

"The State of Indiana will continue to monitor weather conditions through the weekend and will respond as necessary with all available resources."
